Tupuna Return Home

1 min read

The remains of more than 30 Maori tupuna are being officially welcomed back into the country on Monday. Te Papa is holding a special ceremony on Monday afternoon marking the repatriation of 33 remains from five museums across Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Sweden. Most are bones but there are also four moko mokai. Te Papa acting chief executive, Michelle Hippolite, says the remains will be welcomed onto the marae with a powhiri and will be placed in quarantine for two weeks before “research” can begin on them.
